    Description

    Civil war looms in the Bobiverse in this brand-new, epic-length adventure by Audible number one best seller Dennis E. Taylor.

    More than a hundred years ago, Bender set out for the stars and was never heard from again. There has been no trace of him despite numerous searches by his clone-mates. Now Bob is determined to organize an expedition to learn Bender’s fate - whatever the cost.

    But nothing is ever simple in the Bobiverse. Bob’s descendants are out to the 24th generation now, and replicative drift has produced individuals who can barely be considered Bobs anymore. Some of them oppose Bob’s plan; others have plans of their own. The out-of-control moots are the least of the Bobiverse’s problems.

    Undaunted, Bob and his allies follow Bender’s trail. But what they discover out in deep space is so unexpected and so complex that it could either save the universe - or pose an existential threat the likes of which the Bobiverse has ever faced. 

    Heaven’s River is the fourth installment in the blockbuster Audible Original Bobiverse series - which has sold more than one million copies.

    Disappointing

    I really enjoyed the first 3 books in the series which really concentrated on the building of the Bobiverse. However, this story jumps into huge detail about a new solar system and species and the Bobiverse becomes a background to the adventures in Quinlan. it's engaging but not in the same way as the first 3 books and doesn't really belong as a sequel but more a branch. Overall, I find that it has tainted my Bobiverse experience and I would rather have finished and walked away a book earlier. I can see some interesting story lines evolving from where the Bobiverse now finds itself, so I might look forward to future books if they don't wander quite so far (in detail) off the Bob-track.

    BOB-tastic!!! 🛸

    -Okay... In all fairness, I’ve gotta admit that the first three BOBiverse books easily rank among my all time favorite audible books. I have listen to the complete series at least half a dozen times. I will also admit that I downloaded Heaven’s River the moment it became available and immediately put in a marathon listening session. So, with that said... NOT disappointed. At first I was skeptical on how to meaningfully continue the series (especially when the synopsis makes it feel like nothing more than a needless “Quest for Bender” follow up). I couldn’t have been any further off the mark. Even though the first section of the story primarily revolves around Bob-prime, the audience is quickly propelled into the realization that Bob’s distant clones aren’t just petulant children, but may indeed have their own legitimate point of view. As the listener, you really do begin to question who is right... and just because you’re familiar with a character doesn’t mean it is who you would naturally align with in the “real”. The story provides some very timely commentary on the validity of a dissenting ideologically in a fractured society. I will admit, at times I did feel the actual “quest” to find/rescue Bender was a bit of needlessly protracted time filler, but Ray Porter’s superb narration skills keeps the extended storyline tolerable. Ultimately, If you loved the earlier entries into the BOBiverse, then you will have no problem picking up with the rest of the moot and enjoying the ride. If one thing has been made clear to me with this book, it is that the BOBiverse has the potential for a series of never ending stories. Long live (I mean “clone”) Bob!

    filler book

    I really liked the last 3 books a lot but this one is no good. positive reviews are perplexing to me, buy it if you care about continuity more than story.
    12h are just B-roll, running away scenes, nothing interesting happens like the maduro or the others or spaceships related. Main story is very isolated, imagine BoB running around in robot disguise. should have lasted 3h max. Background story is more bobiverse group related but author did not want to commit decisions so they just happen, talked about and waved away, Last 15 mins are a sort of "this is the interesting part but i didnt know how to write it so im telling you now."

    As Skippy would say, five stars, duhhhh!!!

    If you’re like me you got up early the day this was released and are already done with it. If for some reason you listened to the first three and are on the fence about getting the long awaited fourth installment, rest assured it is well worth the credit! Fantastic book Dennis and great performance as always by Ray!

    The Bobiverse takes a turn

    Dennis Taylor's "Bobiverse" series is a great sci-fi listen. Packed with humor, geek references, and thought provoking storylines, I have throughly enjoyed the series. For the most part, this book does continue on with that general theme, though it did feel that Taylor was left a bit adrift as to exactly where to take the story without the "big bad" of "THE OTHERS" to confront anymore. Instead, the story tackles the implications of the diverging clone personalties of Bob- the "drift" as he calls it. As personalities continue to drift farther and farther from original Bob, philosophical differences about interacting with sentients (or "ephemerals") becomes a major sore spot, as the Bobs try to decide what exactly to do with relative eternity.
    Of course, most of this story is taken up with the search for Bender, which leads to a giant megastructure and a mystery about it's creation and creators. Needless to say (slight spoiler), the vast majority of the inhabitants are very technologically limited, which bring the mystery about how they came to be in such an impressive feat of engineering. Unfortunately MOST of book 4 is bogged down with the drudgery of using the "mannies" to try and infiltrate the technologically limited society to unravel the puzzle. It's an intriguing enigma that Taylor created and you obviously want the answers to the questions, but the book gets very bogged down in the minutiae of just traveling through and interacting with this civilization. So compared to the other books it's really quite the slog. There are similarities to the subplot with the Deltans, but unlike that subplot there isn't much diverging from this theme for most of the book, Where the Deltan life (particularly Archimedes') was interesting and interspersed with other plot lines, this is more of a drudge.
    However I do have hope that the storyline will continue with more books, as the overall arc of the series continues to be a very interesting one. I'd have to give this book a lower score than the other 3 as it does drag on as I mentioned, but still I have no regrets about getting this book. I just look forward to the next one in the series.

    Great Series, weakest addition to the series.

    I loved all the previous books but this one lacked something and it is hard to pin point. It felt like the whole story was based on the divide between bobs but they spent so much time not exploring that. Is the longest book in the series and it feels like it shouldn't have been.

    Anthropology ?

    I would like to say at the beginning I was looking forward to this particular release. About halfway into the book I became irritated by the Keystone cop approach to this story. Chapter after chapter, the lack of focus became overwhelming. The main theme of heavens river became a anthropological mess. All human attributes made the story ridiculous. It’s one thing to have Bob spacecraft ,virtual reality ,and another thing to understand why the author would abandon the more science fiction attributes of The first three books. As with most of these long extended series, the final two chapters leave so many possibilities I can’t even count them. All the new players were never flushed out and The soap opera approach to ridiculous situations took over. The author chose not to push the Bobaverse forward, but rather took us down the path of a very long and tedious anthropology book.

    Only 3 hrs in .. I will be up again until 2 AM...

    Got B4 today - immediately hooked. Story is shaping up to be as complex as any other, Ray Porter is doing a GREAT job, the Bob's have really developed a disparate society. Can't wait to find out what the Mega Structure is!

    Thanks for the reference.

    I love these books, the narrator, everything. But what I really love is when the author makes a reference to one of my other all time favorite books, I can't help but love these series even more.

    Quest to Keep Bender's Matrix Dry*

    *Yeah, that should be the title.
    After the brilliance that was the first 3 books, this one falls flat. Hell, it barely registers as passable Sci-fi.
    There were a couple interesting story arcs but they never matured. Most of the book involved running away from bad-tempered "beaver creatures" while keeping some electronics from the drink. Ultimately the solution is wax paper and lots of scurrying. Quite a let down from SCUT, SIDAR and railguns.
    I want my money back Taylor.

    A good addition to the series

    I am a huge huge fan of the first three Bobiverse books, so of course, I pre-ordered a copy of book four here. I listened to it beginning as soon as they released it at midnight. This book is slightly different from the first three in that most of the whole book centers around the one main storyline, instead of getting to see small stories here and there thru the eyes of different Bobs like in the first three books. Good thing the main storyline is a pretty good one, then. While I don't think this is my favorite of the 4 books, I think it is a fine entry into the series. I always have thought that you could write endlessly in this series, given that the Bobs are immortal and that the Universe is a big place! I hope this isn't the last time the Bobiverse calls out to Dennis to write some more into it. And what can be said about Ray's performance that hasn't already been said? He always does an amazing job. My favorite narrator on Audible still, after quite a few years of being a fan of audiobooks.
    If you are a fan of the first three, don't hesitate to re-visit the world of the Bobs!

    Würdiger Nachfolger, andere Stimmung

    Ich habe die ersten 3 Bände verschlungen und war begeistert von dem "neuen" SciFi-Konzept.
    Das Buch 4 jetzt da ist und gleich 17 Stunden geht, kam mir da sehr entgegen.

    Im Vergleich zu den ersten 3 Bänden gibt es weniger parallel erzählte, gleichgewichtete Handlungsstränge. Auch verändert sich der Grundton etwas. Waren die Bobs in dern ersten Büchern vielleicht etwas unterschiedlich, zogen aber alle am gleichen Strang, so kann man sich jetzt nicht mehr darauf verlassen, dass alle Bobs wirklich bedingungslos zu den Guten gehören. Das Bobyversum ist kein Ponyhof.
    Vielleicht ist das realistischer, aber mich hat es etwas enttäuscht.

    Ich habe das Hörbuch in 2 Tagen weggehört und gebe der Geschichte, dem Sprecher und allem 5 Sterne.
    Aber gerade sind die Welt und die Mernschen in real verrückt und anstrengend genug... Da hätte ich für meine Flucht aus dem Alltag in dieser Fortsetzung etwas weniger Dystopie gewünscht.

    Tolle Fortsetzung der ersten Trilogie

    Die Story ist wirklich interessant und gut.
    Sprecher wie immer ausgezeichnet.

    Die Richtung in die die Entwicklung der späteren Bobs ist nicht wirklich was ich nach den ersten 3 Büchern erwartet hatte, aber grundsätzlich verständlich wie es so kommt.

    Langsam verbraucht sich die Geschichte und im Grunde ist das Buch wohl nur ein Teaser für die, die da noch kommen. Schade.

    unnecessary verbose

    Story feels stretched and unfocused.

    The recording is not quite clean, caught some background noise, as if they left their window open. At first I thought it were my neighbors.

    Great story, love the cross references

    I am intrigued by the references to "Skippy", pointing at the audiobooks I have been consuming one after the other around the alien AI "Skippy" that has his representation in this space-time segment as a beer-can-like form.

    Dennis E. Taylor plays with the topic in a humorous way and I would hope for a next release of the Bobiverse saga.

    Different tone to start with, but totally Bob.

    At first, I was worried because the tone felt off, and because I was able to predict a relevant plotpoint, but it soon convinced me fully. I think the prediction was probably due to personal interests, and I overestimated its... hidden-ness somewhat, assuming it to be intended as a major twist.

    This is definitely a worthy successor to the original trilogy.
